Name: Molly McIsaac

Bio: I am a 12 year old boy stuck in the body of a 20 something woman. My apartment is full of action figures and long boxes, and my video game collection frequently topples under the weight of itself. I see most of my life through a lens, and the things I can't document with my camera (you know, like my brain) is churned out into constant verbose chatter.

August 14, 2013 6:12 pm Just curious: why is it hard to believe that geek girls would party? I go to clubs and get sloshed all the time.
August 14, 2013 1:16 pm See, I'm ALL about sexualization. I'm a feminist that is super into exploiting sexuality because I don't think that it should be wrong or shameful in any way. I think the fact that people get upset about it is old fashioned and rooted in old social constructs that should be destroyed. As for the makeup, I look like that every day because it is my dearest desire to be an anime character. And I DO want to be famous - not because I'm a narcissistic, but because there needs to be a strong geek woman that new generation geeks can look up to, and I think I can hold that role. I would have KILLED for a girl like me to look up to when I was an awkward and bullied nerd. I obviously can't speculate TOO much before the show hits the chopping block, but the filming experience was very positive. There was very little - if any - manufactured drama, and the producers mostly encouraged us to share our love of Fandom. The point of the show SEEMS to be to show the world that geeks can be socially adjusted, awesome people. I think it's trying to DISPEL stereotypes.
August 13, 2013 5:26 pm I haven't seen "King of the Nerds", but I can tell you outright what I was "cast" as: I was the opinionated, loud, voice of reason on social issues in the house. I stood up for my beliefs and was incredibly outspoken the entire time.
August 13, 2013 5:25 pm It wasn't like a competition elimination show - there was actually very little competition. We all worked for Comikaze as interns and there was a possibility of ONE of us getting a job out of it, but it wasn't the main factor of the show. The point was more to show geek culture as what it is. We cosplayed, met celebrity idols, went to comic book stores, went to cons... it was super fun! It's not a rooster, it's a chocobo from Final Fantasy.
August 13, 2013 1:05 pm "Fandemonium" was sacked because of some copyright issues - there's been a few other shows called that in the past. At first "Fangasm" rubbed me the wrong way, but it's actually a well known term within the fan community to explain that overwhelming feeling of fan excitement when something awesome happens within your fandom: IE I had a "fangasm" when I drank with Matt Smith. Besides, I think it's catchy. :-)
April 19, 2013 3:56 pm mcguffin, you should read my comments below for further insight into my journey of healing. I just wanted to comment to correct a small thing: Knockout is named Knockout because she punches people. SUPER STRENGTH.
April 18, 2013 4:37 pm I'm currently around 170lbs, not that it's any of your business, and I couldn't be happier :-)
April 18, 2013 4:23 pm That is precisely what I was saying. If I had just wanted attention, the years of cosplaying other characters before Knockout would have fulfilled this. Personifying strong, empowered female characters helped ME to become strong and empowered.
April 18, 2013 3:20 pm You see, that's just the thing: I DON'T care what other people think of me now. Cosplay helped me begin that journey to self acceptance.
April 18, 2013 1:58 pm First of all: I am so, so happy that I could help you with your own body issues! They are a horrible monster, and I understand how they can completely consume your life and emotional well being. THAT being said... I think you should cosplay Mara Jade ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. If you don't work out, so what? You are cosplaying a character that you love, and I guarantee that escaping into the role of a strong female character will do more for you than you realize.
